Thankfulness Blog Hop!!!!!

Good Saturday Morning to everyone.  Today I am part of a Thankfulness Blog Hop organized by the Sarah the Pink Cricut!  Make sure to check out all the talented papercrafters taking part (link as listed at the end of this post).  I have a fun card to share with you today.  It is super easy but I think turned out impressive!
The card itself is A2 standard and I made it out of craft paper.  I used my edge scissors to 'rough up' the border.  Added a bit of my fav ribbon and used a cuttlebug die to cut the leaf.  I used Pink by Design Pink Cricut stamps from the Bountiful Blessings set for the outside, inside and the envelope.
I used a strip of paper and a sentiment stamp to finish off the inside.
I really love the envelope.  I used one sentiment to make a border on both the front and back of the envelope.  I cut another leaf (a great place to write the name of the person getting the card) and used the negative space to ink blot leaves on the envelope.

As we enter into the Thanksgiving Season it makes us reflect on what we are blessed with.  I have been blessed in so many way through so many people it is hard to pick the ones I am most thankful for.  The song says 'count your blessing name them one by one,' so I am going to name just a few.
*my family
*a wonderful career that takes me to amazing places and allows me to work with wonderful people
*the opportunity to get to know and share this hobby with some UBBER talented papercrafters!!

Workshop Layout-Mistletoe

Thank God it is Friday--I am in Kansas City today visiting my family as I seem to be on the road most of the remaining year until Christmas.
This layout is super easy and all I added that was not in the kit was the ink on the edges and the glassy accents.
I also added some ink to the paper flower edges--
I changed up the sentiment a bit--by using the Cricut I have a ton of fonts to pick from and I used an ornament for the H in must-
I think the glassy accents a lot to the top edge of the page.
Make sure to stop in on Saturday while you have a cup of coffee and catch up on the blogs--I will be part of a blog hop with the Pink Cricut and a bunch of other very talented paper crafters!!!

make it a great one-

Workshop Cards...Mistletoe!!!!

Well as promised here is the cards from this months Workshop on the go! I simply love these papers. This brown card is my fav--think it is a really fresh updated holiday card--although it is vintage in it's feel.

The workshop kit makes 2 of each of the cards and the layout I will share on Friday--and you will still have over half the paper left over!  All the stamps and brads are included in the kit, all I added was a bit of ink on the edge and some glassy accents!
